Klopp plays down talk of a Liverpool quadruple

Jurgen Klopp has played down talk of Liverpool winning the quadruple this season and says the Reds are ‘not even close to thinking about crazy stuff like that’.

Liverpool won the first major silverware of the season after beating Chelsea on penalties in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday, with attentions now turned towards the club’s FA Cup fifth round tie at Norwich on Wednesday evening.

 

Klopp’s side also remain in the Premier League title race and are six points behind Manchester City with a game in hand on the league leaders, whilst the Reds will take a 2-0 advantage into the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie with Inter Milan at Anfield.

However, speaking ahead of the club’s FA Cup clash at Carrow Road, Klopp was keen to downplay talk of a potential quadruple and says his side are a long way from making unprecedented history.

“No team in the history of English football ever won the quadruple, right? Because it’s really difficult,” Klopp said. “We are not even close to thinking about crazy stuff like that.

“We have won the Carabao Cup, we are behind City in the league and now we have Norwich in the FA Cup after 120 minutes on Sunday. Even Manchester City with all their quality did not win it.

“The reality is [that] to win something you have to be focused on the next step and the one after that – that’s what we do.

“I don’t see it as a compliment [if people think they can] but it’s better people think we can do good things rather than be useless. I don’t need this kind of compliment – we are close to nothing at the moment.

“We face a lot of good teams between now and the end of May. The smallest problem I have right now is thinking they [players] could fly.”
